The Islamic State terrorist group on Wednesday published a hit list targeting moderate Muslims — including top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin — in its English-language propaganda magazine Dabiq.

Ms. Abedin is listed with a number of other Western Muslim leaders in a lengthy article, which called extremists to “kill the Imams of Kufr (the infidels) in the West,” according to The Clarion Project, a nonprofit that monitors Islamic extremists. 

The list includes Muslim leaders from the U.S., the United Kingdom and Canada. 

The latest issue of the magazine celebrates the Brussels attacks and identifies the key culprits behind the bombings, which killed 31 people. 

“Paris was a warning. Brussels was a reminder,” the magazine said, according to the New York Post. “What is yet to come will be more devastating and more bitter by the permission of Allah, and Allah prevails.”

For the first time, the magazine confirmed brothers Khalid and Ibrahim al-Bakraoui, who blew themselves up in the attacks on the Belgian capital, were responsible for “all preparations for the raids in Paris and Brussels.” 

Khalid, 27, and Ibrahim, 29, were convicted carjackers and bank robbers who joined the Islamic State movement while serving time in a Belgian prison, the magazine said.

The magazine also confirmed that Najim Laachraoui, 24, a Belgian of Moroccan descent, was the man who blew himself up at the Brussels airport, and identified him as the bomb maker for the Paris and Brussels attacks.
